President meddling in impeachment trial, why not?

This is in reaction to the Inquirer editorial of Jan. 27, “Did P-Noy meddle?” An impeachment is a national inquest that cannot exclude anyone like the president, our No. 1 political animal.

House warring against Supreme Court?


I don’t know if it is the entire House of Representatives or only some elements of it, but I get the impression that there is a brewing desire to bring some or all of the Supreme Court justices to their knees. Indeed, House members have reason to be unhappy with the Court. For one, the [...]

To make or break


There are two star performers for 2012. They are President Benigno Aquino III and the Filipino as a people. The combination or relationship of the two carried over a momentum that began in 2011 when the government blocked the attempted, post-haste exit of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. By coincidence or synchronicity, a major shift began [...]

Where is our sense of right and wrong?

However, I regret to say that up to the present he has not displayed enough guts to properly lead his people. On the contrary, he failed as a leader to show sincerity in most of his actuations.

The people won


From across oceans and time zones, I watched the Senate sitting as an Impeachment Court vote on convicting or acquitting the impeached Renato Corona, Chief Justice. Exacting 12 hours behind Philippine time, from 2 – 6 am in New York, I became part of history, witnessing a legal, political and societal drama that is a first of its kind.

The star witness


On the 40th day of his trial, Chief Justice Renato Corona himself took the witness stand. The head of the impeachment court, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, graciously welcomed him, assuring him that he would be treated with utmost respect befitting his position and the institution he represents. Barely acknowledging these gestures of courtesy, the star witness took the oath and proceeded to deliver not what was supposed to be a brief opening statement, but a well-rehearsed soliloquy.

Moral of the story


As I write this, Chief Justice Renato Corona is still sharing his testimony with the impeachment court, attempting to explain the sources of his wealth and—most riveting so far—the background of the family feud between his wife Cristina and her uncle and aunts, cousins and nieces and nephews.
